Party ideas

It's T's 7th Birthday next Sat, and we're having a party for him and 10 of his friends (ummm ... yeah, didn't think it through really :snigger: )

So, I wanted to try get some ideas for the kind of games we can play to keep them occupied, as well as any ideas for cool party bags

We're asking the parents to send the kids with a spare set of clothes as T wants to have a water pistol fight in the garden which i thought would be OK ...

For the party bags, I wanted to do the usual cake, toy, etc .. but also wanted something a bit longer lasting so was thinking of those cress potato head things ... or something along those lines
We're going to get some cheap camera's and ask the kids to take pictures through the day whenever they like ...

Any good idea's peeps? He's never had a proper party before, so we wanted to make it really good

Sprinklers is a good idea :D

The garden is an OK size .... Nothing massive, but perhaps big eough for an inflatable obstacle course xfingers the weather is good ... Have no idea what we'll do with them if it's raining ... probably go play out anyway :D

Parachute games a really good and for the older kids they can be more rough and tumble. You can buy a parachute from ELC and a quick google should bring up lots of games.

I'd say all those old favourite type games, musical chairs/statues etc with sweets as prizes, that parachute thingy looks great Kirsty

It's a busy month for birthdays in your house :innocent:

hi everyone!
I'm new to this site and i love reading the posts. One of the most creative kid's parties I have been to is the Hawaiian theme party. The kids even drank juice from fake coconut (which holds a plastic cup inside). Everyone loved the idea!

As for a 7 year old boy's party -- I suggest you make little capes for the boys and ask the to decorate it! You could have the alphabet letter precut so the kids can just pick the letter of their name (ex K for Kris) and glue it to their cape. They would love it! :)

Thanks Soph

Sorry girls, I completely forgot to update in here :whoops:

They all had a fab time, even though it was raining so none of the fun things we were going to do outside could be done.

It was absolute bedlam though ... aren't kids loud?

hi everyone!
Sorry i guess I was late with the suggestions Kirsty ?(
Sounds like you had fun!!

Does anyone here know of any web games for kids? I want to find safe sites, not the ones with inappropriate pop-ups. Any suggestions? (also should we start a new thread or is it ok that i brought up the topic here?)

Probably best to start a new thread Soph ... You'll get more responses that way.

There's a section on General Parenting which is your best bet I reckon
